Boots on the ground

Champion-Taylor (left) and Szor leave the William Whyte Residents Association (295 Pritchard Ave.) to inspect the neighbourhood. On days where it is too cold to walk, the COPP group patrols the community by car.
Some back lane properties are not properly addressed, so Szor consults her map to find out exactly what property they are looking at.
A pile of furniture and garbage on the sidewalk of Andrews Street, near Aberdeen Avenue. COPP documented the situation, with the intention of calling it into 311 upon returning to the William Whyte Residents Assocation office.
A Canada Post employee told Champion-Taylor the aforementioned garbage pile on Andrews Street was not there the day before.
Champion-Taylor takes a photo of some graffiti. A prominent street gang had tagged homes, commercial residences and even vehicles the night before.
Discarded mattresses in the front yard of a William Whyte house. Champion-Taylor told The Times that the city’s garbage pickup doesn’t deal with mattresses, couches or other large furniture or appliances. Residents must call 311 to arrange for special collection.
